Apple and Foundation

Benjamin Frisch in Slate has one of the best opening paragraphs I’ve read in a long time

Apple, a secretive organization staffed by technological visionaries able to predict the future of technology, has ordered a television series based on Isaac Asimov’s Foundation novels, an epic saga about … a secretive organization staffed by technological visionaries able to predict the future of technology. There is one major difference between the two: Apple is located on the edge of the continent, while Asimov’s tale takes place on the edge of the galaxy.

Since the Foundation series is one of my all-time favorites, I’m looking for to this.
